PocketWizard FlexTT5 overview

  • 1Description

The PocketWizard FlexTT5 Transceiver Radio Slave is part of an ultra-versatile radio slave system, and is dedicated specifically to the Nikon i-TTL flash control system. It simply slides directly into the camera's hot shoe, and there are no special settings to make or modes to call up. Use the camera, on-camera flash, or flash commander controls for flash compensation, zone and ratio control. It supports single or multiple dedicated flash units.

The FlexTT5 is the ideal addition to any Nikon i-TTL flash system. Since this system works on digital radio technology, it can support i-TTL operation around corners, out-of-sight, or in bright sunlight.

The FlexTT5 is a "Transceiver", meaning it can be used either as a transmitter placed into the camera's hot shoe, in combination with another FlexTT5 unit on the flash end, or as a receiver, with a MiniTT1 transmitter-only unit placed on the camera's hot shoe.

Compatibility

Nikon On-Camera Master Flashes:
SB-700 (GN ratio mode not supported),SB-800, SB-900, SB-910, SU-800
2 Channel Settings + Learn Mode
Each setting can be programmed to support up to 20 ControlTL channels for TTL photography, or 32 standard channels for manual flash photography. The FlexTT5 Transceiver also has a three-zone selector switch, which integrates with Nikon zones and ratios. The Learn Mode allows the unit to detect the channel used by any other unit in the area.
Reverse Compatible
Operates on the same channels as all other PocketWizards and will work with any unit you may already have.
HyperSync & High-Speed Sync Technology
Supports flash sync speeds of up to 1/500th sec. High-Speed Sync auto syncs flash system with the camera's shutter speed setting, up to 1/8000th.
Built-in Hot Shoe
Features a hot shoe on the top, so that you can still mount a flash unit directly onto the camera. This allows you to combine your remote flash with the on-camera flash, or use the on-camera flash for additional i-TTL control only.
Camera/Flash Ports
The FlexTT5 Transceiver has two plug-in ports for use with remote Nikon i-TTL cameras, or other non-TTL flash units. Camera remote triggering also requires use of a camera-specific "motor cord".
Remote Camera Triggering/Relay Mode
Can be used to trigger a camera remotely. Requires use of a camera-specific "motor cord". Auto Relay Mode allows you to trigger a remote camera in sync with a remote flash.
Low-Profile Design
The FlexTT5 lies flat to stay out of the way and uses a flip-up antenna for additional range when needed.
Configurable and Upgradeable
The FlexTT5 features a mini-USB port, which makes it upgradeable and "future-proof" for continuous improvements and compatibility upgrades. The included PocketWizard Utility software allows you to select custom settings through the USB connection, and to set it to use specific channels used by other Pocket Wizard units.

    PocketWizard FlexTT5 reviews

    FlexTT5 Transceiver Radio Slave for Nikon i-TTL Flash System is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 352.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I went with regular pocket wizards I found these to be very difficult. I am a professional and know what I am doing. I am using a D3s and sb 900's off camera. These things work half the time. You have to turn the equipment on in a certain order, and if you make any changes in camera or on the flash, you have to go through the whole process again. They are great in theory, I just expected pocket wizard to make them more user friendly and reliable before releasing them on the market. Unless there is a firmware upgrade soon I will be getting rid of mine. And I know several other professionals in the same boat. I really do not understand how they got such good ratings by so many others.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from READ before use Like a giddy kid on Christmas tearing through the package to get to the toy. I neglected to really read instructions. Well I'll say this, READ EVERYTHING and not the part you think you need. It's important to update device, power device on a certain order (strobe/lights, flex/mini, then camera last) I made the mistake as I read EVERY strobe should be on TTL in order for these to work. That's true for off camera flash,but when your trying to use the flash on camera with other flashes you need to set the sb800/sb900 to command mode in the flash (I know how stupid of me, but hopefully this helps somebody avoid the embarrassing moment as it took me a WHILE to figure this out)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waited 50 years for this System 50 years ago, I was using #2 Flashbulbs with a home made battery system to utilize off camera flash. I just received six of the new FlexTT5 PocketWizard units and these are fan-tastic for using with my Nikon SB 800 and SB 900 units. Today I also got a AC3 Zone Controller for use on my D3X and after using the whole system, I would suggest PocketWizard bundle the AC3 Zone Controller with any orders for the Radio Slave systems. WOW, these things really work great, and I might add that the customer service from PocketWizard is just the icing on the cake. They have been great in helping me get this all working. I'll be adding several more SB 900 units and FlexTT5 units in the feature.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC I've had the Flex and TT1 for almost 2 years now and they are wonderful. I just purchased my second Flex for a concert shoot since it was going to be an extremely dark venue. Worked great! The only reason I took off a star is because the attachment feet that slide into the hotshoe are made of plastic and seem to be fairly weak. They haven't broke yet, but I REALLY wish that for the cost of these, they would have made them metal to reduce the risk of snapping them off during a shoot. Just be cautious not to hit them on anything while attached to your camera. Overall, a fantastic product. Very reliable. I might have to get a controller to control the different groups now too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fancy but sometimes difficult These work great when they are setup correctly i'm finding, the challenge is setting them up correctly. The setup is their major caveat. Pros: Control TL power tracking is fantastic and makes it simple to do quick automated snaps of product photos with off camera flash. Uses commonly available rechargeable batteries like the wonderful Eneloope that BH stocks. Cons: Some if not all speed lights do not work in full Auto mode (Sb-910 is unresponsive in any other mode than plain TTL or manual.) Paul buff lights are wonderful with these, but you can't use the P-buff controller with these. PW does not have a decent controller (I dislike the AC3).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Control power remotely I love my PocketWizards. Even though I've switched from speedlights to studio strobes, I love the convenience of being able to not only trigger my lights remotely, but also to control the power remotely using either the AC3 zone controller or the built in functionality of my Sekonic L-478DR. If that were possible on their other triggers I'd be content, unfortunately this is the only way. I have no need for the ControlTL functionality, although it's nice to have for some. So I feel like I'm paying extra for a feature I don't use. That plus the the need to get an extra adapter to connect it to my strobes is why I knocked off 1 star.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Workable solution with caveats... The transmission of signal is what was expected, but only when the antenna was in the 90* position to the body. If the antenna (which is loose at best), flops down, it looses connection even at close distances (less than 20'). We really wanted to like these and were getting 5 to replace or Radio Poppers. However, they just don't work that well in practical, everyday normal use. If you shoot with your camera in hand, and pay attention to the antenna, you can do well with them. But if like me, you hang your camera by your side at times (on a strap), the antenna flops down and when you next go to shoot, it does not fire your OCL's. Not for us, we sent them back, sorry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work right out of the box. I use the PocketWizards with SB-800's and 900's in a studio environment to eliminate misfires in situations where the Nikon lights were occasionally not seeing one another. I haven't tested them for range or for reliably getting their signals around corners in cluttered environments, buying the FlexTT5's only to keep my inventory simple. I'd not used radio slaves before, but they fired up immediately after I figured out you have to set the lights to TTL rather than remote. No problems that I can see, like their size, like their reliability.
